[Campylobacter fetus subspecies jejuni in chickens (author's transl)].


A bacteriological examination of 239 chickens coming from 89 commerical flocks yielded a high incidence of Campylobacter fetus subspecies jejuni isolations. From 30.1% of the birds or 41.6% of the flocks this micro-organism was isolated from 28.6% of the jejunal contents and 11.2% of the bile samples respectively. In contrast this agent could not be isolated from the skin or peritoneal cavity of 750 carcasses of broilers (13 flocks) before of after freezing in. No correlation could be found between the isolation of Campylobacter fetus ssp jejuni and the diagnosed disease condition of the birds examined.
